Carmel ... found in a killpen in February 2019 ... said to be 18 years old, a Paint World Champion in Dressage ... her registered name was something with Karma in it ... a lesson horse from a reputable riding stable ... this is her background ... She definitely knows dressage, we aren't certain how much, but more than the basics, our vet aged her with caution at 21 years, and she is certainly the type of calm, steady, knowledgeable mare I would call a lesson master, tho she falls just a hair short of my definition of schoolmaster.

We know she can do amazing things, but first and foremost, we want her to have a a good home with a special person who will love her for who she is. She is one of the sweetest mares I have worked with in years, patient, stoic, and forgiving. We believe she has earned the right to be someone's special lady, not just the horse with the special abilities. She is sound, clean, beautifully marked, flashy in appearance & in her movements, she is smooth, floaty, responsive to leg and hand aides, and adjusts wonderfully to the level and needs of her rider. She would be amazing as a personal horse for a child just starting in dressage, or for someone who is interested in learning dressage/flatwork at an older stage in their life where bumps and bouncing are not so much fun. She is a confidence builder either way.

UTD Coggins, Vaccines, dewormer, teeth floated, farrier (she is currently barefoot for the winter, but we had front shoes on over the summer when she was being worked). She is on a senior diet, with supplements & an excellent quality hay, as we dont want to lose her topline. Adoption application, references, and contract required.

We may not know who she WAS, but we do know who she IS ... now we just need to discover who she will BE.
